Much like New Year’s fireworks, incandescent lava fountains in Halema‘uma‘u can be a beautiful display. This photo, taken on Oct. 12, 2021, shows lava from the western vent in Halema‘uma‘u reaching heights of 30 to 50 feet and supplying lava into the lake through a short spillway. (USGS photo by B.
